‘Sonny Smith Presents 100 Records’

by

Rare is the jukebox that celebrates the work of such little known greats as Zic Speck and the Spectones (“Operation Self Destruct”) or the poet/country gentleman Hank Champion (“I Walk the Streets, Richest Man Who Ever Lived”). Rarer yet is this full operation of Sonny Smith’s Cosmoramic, filled with 100 fictional 7-inches, titled and recorded by Smith (A and B-sides), their covers illustrated by an array of artists, and on display at the Cinders Gallery through September 5th. Smith-a writer and artist on break from his underhyped and wonderful band, the Sunsets-performs on this opening night.
